And it may be a stupid one, but can fevers trigger a flare?

I've been sick with a cold/runny nose/cough/fever all weekend...and I noticed on Sat. a slight rash on my face, mostly on the left side.

Since Lupus is immune related, I was wondering if it's possible to have a flare when you get sick with something like a cold or fever.

I've gotten fevers when I've been in a flare. But recently I had a virus of some kind, and it did push me into a flare. I felt really lousy for nearly 6 weeks. Took an increase in prednisone and two different antibiotics to get rid of it.

Thanks for replying.... I'm taking much longer to get over this than everyone else who came down with it at my work. Oh the joys of have immune issues!
